Netflix Will Soon Stream CBS Programs
The two have signed a 2-year licensing agreement, which will bring Star Trek, Cheers, Medium and much more to the streaming selection.

If you’re a Netflix subscriber, you probably spend a lot of time searching for titles that you can stream directly into your home. Pretty soon, you may spend less time searching (and cursing), and more time watching.

Netflix just announced a 2-year partnership with CBS, which will allow subscribers to stream some of the network’s programming. We’re not sure which current shows will be available, but it looks like the network is opening the vault when it comes to classics.

We do know that there will be full seasons of Frasier, Cheers and Family Ties, as well as select episodes of Star Trek, Twin Peaks, Medium and Flashpoint. If all goes well, CBS can extend its agreement with Netflix—and hopefully the selection as well.

Expect to see that additional programming pop up sometime in early April. Of course, you’ll need a streaming Netflix subscription, which starts at $7.99 per month.
